  Wed 9th Jun - Club Meeting - 122 Shore St North Cleveland - 7pm       
         
 

Thurs 10 June: DW various grades. Glasshouse Mountains.

Who’s up for an explore? There are several track walks (eg Tibrogargan circuit, Trachyte circuit) around some of the Glasshouse Mountains so we can make a day of it. I have no intention of climbing Tibrogargan but there are other smaller peaks (eg Tibberoowuccum) we may or may not climb. I haven’t done most of them before so consider it a survey. The exact route will be decided depending who signs up – I’m interested in the Yul-yan-man track but can be persuaded to do others instead. The start is about 1hr 15mins drive from Cleveland and it’s on a weekday to avoid the traffic. Here’s some info: https://parks.des.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0033/163869/ghmtns-walks-map.pdf.
